Economics Colloquium I

Course Number:



Undergraduate Economics


B.A. in Economics, B.S. in Economics, B.S. in Economics and Mathematical Sciences, Required

Course Description

FALLĀ Economics majors meet weekly for discussions about current research by faculty or students, presentations on economics from economists outside academia, and expository talks on selected economics topics not part of the usual curricula. The colloquium provides students with opportunities to grow personally and intellectually by introducing them to campus resources (including special interest to undergraduates such as preparation for graduate school) and using the economic toolbox to examine current economic topics in the press. It is recommended that students take this course during the sophomore year so that economics majors realize the range of resources that exit on campus. (Colloquium, 1 hour)
